Police in Duxbury are investigating what they are calling a suspicious event that occurred Sunday around 6:00 p.m. on Buckboard Road.
A nine-year old girl who was walking along the side of the road was approached by a vehicle operated by a white male in his twenties or thirties, who attempted to entice the child into his vehicle by stating he had something for her in the car.
The child started to walk away, but the man allegedly followed her and continued to encourage the child to get into his car.
The child then started crying and ran away.
The suspect fled the area in what police say was a small black sedan with round headlights. He was described as having a medium build and was wearing a heavily stained tee shirt and jeans.
Duxbury Police are now appealing to the community for any information on the incident.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Duxbury Police Department at 781-934-5656.
